  1. It is getting out of hand.

  2. Would be nice if you showed the studies and specific "illnesses" you are referring to.

  3. Here's the real facts…The problem lies solely with illegal black market cbd/thc cutting agents adding vitamin e among other oils to cut the product. Oil + lungs = negative consequences for your health. The medical reports are coming in that these youths are doing illegal substances and hiding it under the umbrella of vaping all to avoid a felony possession charge. Not one youth being hospitalized has been only using traditional nicotine vaping products that landed them in this sad situation.

    Get your story facts straight! Partial and misleading reporting is irresponsible to the public.

    Vaping nicotine is not the issue. The warning should only be about what is actually going on, illegal black market thc carts being cut with oils will kill you or collapse your lungs by blebs bursting, air entering the chest wall causing the lung to collapse.

    Get your story facts straight!

    Misinforming the public only deters more smokers to quit with vaping and continue on smoking. Vaping nicotine isn't the problem!! Illegal black market products are what is causing the sicknesses and deaths.

    Stop spreading misinformed propaganda with incomplete news all to warrant future legislation for removing flavors. Flavors aren't the issue either while vaping nicotine products. Taking away flavors is just wrong. I for one see where this stories additional agenda is. Just another agenda and forewarning they want to take away flavors and keep people smoking nasty tobacco flavor. Flavors are one of the leading incentives for those seeking to quit smoking and continue to remain smoke free. Adults have a right to chose, not the government saying what flavor we can vape. You will just cause more black market issues taking away flavors, causing more health problems for adults. If a USA vape lab must be ISO certified then they are the only ones that should be selling a vape eliquid!! Regulations here are keeping us safe, not government regulating a flavor or worse states instituting flavor bans, just stupid!

    I hope WMUR and those creating these incomplete news stories wake up one day to how many people they have harmed and kept people smoking. All for an agenda and lack of facts. Sad. Smoking kills so many and harms your health in so many ways, yet vaping can save a life and improve your health long term. It is a harm reduction product and can be used to eliminate nicotine entirely and even helped you quit the habitual habit! Vaping nicotine, vaping flavors aren't the enemy, black market cbd/thc IS!

    SMH at the stupidity of those reporting on this topic when they clearly aren't reporting facts on what's actually going on and why these sicknesses and deaths are occurring.

    SMH do your actual research before putting out stories without getting the actual facts but why would they, it's WMUR, same old same old half story reporting. WMUR should be ashamed, maybe one day they will learn when one of THEIR loved one dies because they never quit smoking cigarettes all because of stupid stories like these that lack actual FACTS!

    Barely touching on the REAL story is doing more harm than good for the welfare of the public.

    Youths shouldn't be smoking, vaping or anything else. Any adult using black market products should indeed beware, it's not just the youths in danger!!

    Please everyone just stay away from these products, we want you to be around tomorrow.
